INT-CEU 23.0           ASL Grammatical Aspects:  Comparative Translations

                                    Cassell & McCaffrey, 1995, Sign Enhancers, Inc.

 

This course is designed to “help resolve issues around the difference between ASL, English and Pidgin Sign English (PSE), also referred to as “Contact Signing.”  Since PSE is not a language, but a combination of elements from both ASL and English, there has been much confusion around how to define it.  This course, with the companion instructional media assists learners in seeing a comparison followed by demonstrations of how these ASL grammatical aspects can be incorporated within PSE to maximize the clarity of such communications.  A unique visual comparison is provided in the context of manageable sentences in order to assist learners to better respond to the preferences of consumers requesting the use of PSE as applied to transliteration services.”

Ross, 2004, Hallenross and Associates, LLC, College of St. Catherine ,RSA Region V ITP Award #H160A000008

 

“As interpreters we often find fingerspelling, both receptive and expressive, to be a challenge.  The reasons for this are varied and sometimes quite personal…it is apparent that fingerspelling is a challenge in large part because we don’t thoroughly understand its purposes and realities of production.  This module is designed to make the purpose and realities of production clear and to explore their application to the interpreting process.  The module is designed to be used by interpreters at various levels of development.  Accordingly, activities have been categorized as novice, intermediate and advanced based on level of difficulty.  It is not necessary to complete all three levels to earn CEUs.  In fact, it is entirely possible to complete the module at one level and return to it later for additional CEUs at another level.”

 

Using these materials you can complete an Independent Study under the RID CMP/ACET programs.  This module can be modified to meet your needs.  The table of contents provides suggested amounts of time required to complete each section.
